==Options==
 +
*Clicking on the Options icon in the toolbar opens a modal window where you can set component level options for articles. To see the help screen for Options, click [[Help31:Components_Article_Manager_Options|Article Manager Options]]
  
There are several options for sorting the articles.
+
==Quick Tips==
* Ordering - sort articles by their article manager order. See Ordering Articles.
+
* If Joomla is installed without sample data, one article category called "Uncategorised" is created automatically. If you want to use other categories for articles, you should create them before trying to add articles.
* Status - sort articles by their publication status.
+
* To see trashed and archived articles, set the Status filter to All.
* Title - sort articles in alphabetical order by their title
+
* To change the ordering of articles within a category, click on the Ordering column heading to sort by this column. Also, it is easier to see the ordering if you filter on the desired category.
* Category - sort articles in alphabetical order by their category
+
* Access - sort articles by their User Access Level
+
* Language - sort articles by their language.
+
* Date - sort articles in chronological order by date
+
* ID - sort articles in numerical order by article ID
+
  
With a sorting parameter chosen, you can also determine if articles will be shown in ascending or descending order.
+
